Re: creepy: Hatikvah

According to Macy Nulman's Concise Encyclopedia of Jewish Music,
Hatikvah (the poem, not the store) is from "The nine-stanza poem,
originally called 'Tikvatenu' (Our Hope), [and] was written in 1878 by
the itinerant Hebrew poet Naphtali Herz Imber (1856-1909)."   I guess
that Hitler can't get "credit" for that.
